Being a NEET is pretty rough if you don't have any activities to pursue outside of your room.
Don't become unproductive. I'm not saying you need to have a job or make money, but you need to keep moving and doing new things. Simply consuming new things isn't enough stimuli to be healthy for you.
Also get exercise, not exercising will greatly increase your risk for depression, anxiety, and other mental health issue.

Life itself gets pretty monotonous Anon. Even if you decide to change and explore what the world has to offers, you'll find soon enough that the problem radicates in the incapacity of giving your life some kind of meaning and finding what really makes you happy. And that's a problem you'll face just by living and feeling.

No. Anyone "bored" by NEETdom is just a fakeNEET normalfag wannabe. Let me guess, you're depressed, you want money to go out and have "fun" with, you can't get out of bed in the morning, every day feels the same?

You make me fucking sick. At least wageslaves wake up every morning and drag themselves into the job they're brainwashed into needing to survive, you're all just weirdos who are too scared of social interaction to leave the house. Just rip off the fucking bandaid and man up, if NEET life isn't fulfilling for you then you're already too far gone. Get a job, join the rest of the masses, you're not cut out for it.

Me? I'm going to sit back, relax, maybe put on 月曜から夜ふかし in a bit because I can't really watch it live in my timezone, play some games, read some manga, do some light exercise, finish my reps, and practice piano.

Who, the depressed idiots?

There are plenty of reasons why these people might have wound up as NEETs, but none of them are good.

This is a lifestyle you have to choose, fully aware of the consequences. I'll probably never have kids or get married, I'll probably never travel to another country, and I'll probably never have more than 20,000 dollars in my bank account. If any of these things worry you, or you're worried that they might be a concern to you in the future, do NOT become a NEET.

Coming up on two years of being NEET now, I am also sick of it, but it's a comforting sort of sick. I'm currently working on getting my drivers license, and then getting a job and or taking classes once I do, but part of me wants to just stay how I am now, see how far I can push it before my parents kick me out, I honestly don't think they ever would, too spineless. Never mind that I can't think of jobs I'd be good at or get hired for, I don't even have a high school diploma (although I did go to community college for a year without one still), trades sound good and I like hands on stuff, but I feel I wouldn't fit in with the sort of people doing those jobs as I'm weak and a dork not to mention trans.

I'm white, 120lbs (which counts as normal BMI for my height, still trying to loose weight though). People I talk to say I pass, helps that I'm really short for being biologically male, I'd probably agree I pass at least until I open my mouth though at the same time I feel I'm ugly but that's self esteem or lack therof. What do I think about the suicide rate? I dunno what's there to say, I do agree it's a mental illness if that's what you mean, but I think transitioning helps it for most people and that the rate is probably a combination of trannies being crazy (and often having additional mental issues) and being in bad situations.

As far as I know I wanna be a NEET. Waking up to get draged by School every morning, sucking the last minutes of sleep even fully aware I'm going in late, and eating some non-satisfactory food from home ( hell I almost don't even have stuff to cook, and guess who manages money here, who gives me the look for 20 euros around 2 or 3 weeks) and then beat my ass for work until 9 now. Until Sunday comes by, my free day, where I lay down on my bed, waiting for the night to come, tired of sleeping, to be able to use my laptop because I still live with my shitty stepfather, who blames the root of my problems in electronics.

I get strict about what I eat, most of our carb sources are meant for farmers and physical labourers, not NEETS or even office drones. Being fat sucks, don't get fat. If you're already fat, cut back on carb sources. That means deep fried shit, pizza, etc. Easiest way to avoid massive calorie sources.
Losing weight makes exercise much easier. So if you are overweight, prioritize the diet first. You can't outrun your fork. If you're already at or manage to reach a reasonable weight, you need to do regular cardio. Three times a week. Beyond that, is extra.
I go to a gym up the road from me, I'm pretty lucky. It's a small and quiet place. If you can't, either take up running or look for exercise equipment second-hand. For those who are overweight or have shitty joints, don't do running. The repetitive impact sucks. Find an elliptical or bike instead.

"Therapist" is a nebulous term. In many places, "therapist" or "psychotherapist" is not a well regulated category of healthcare practitioner, or not regulated at all. You want a psychologist or a psychiatrist, who uses diagnostic assessment and then relevant evidence-based treatment either through well-researched programs, pharmaceutical intervention, or a combination (pharmaceutical intervention should always be monitored at least every other week, not some nonsense "see ya when your prescription is up").

That's what everyone thinks, but never underestimate how hard it can be to be a NEET. At the beginning it's enjoyable. You can do whatever you want, sleep whenever you want, play games, watch anime, etc. But it can wear you down. Especially if you already have other problems, like social anxiety. You spend a lot of your time alone in your room, not interacting much with other people, which means that you are alone with your thoughts. May sound really great, but once you get stuck in a loop of negative thoughts, it can get incredible hard to break it.
Another danger is the lack of fulfilling stimuli. You are on your own, without other people. No physical contact or anything of that sort. You may think it doesn't matter, but it does. Neither time nor anything else really matters. Time starts to fly by without you noticing at first. Soon you will notice that just consuming media gets boring. Once that boredom sets in, things get really worse, since you will have a hard time to motivate yourself to do new things. You will spend hours upon hours each day literally doing nothing. Often you have a hard time finding anything you want to do, so just go to sleep earlier, hoping tomorrow changes your perspective. Hobbies like learning a language or playing an instrument may bring distraction, but again, having nobody to share them with can mean you will find them pointless. Just existing can be an utter pain.

You can never know beforehand if a NEET live is truly fitting for you. Some deal with it better than others, but it can be incredible hard at times. On the other hand, once you come to term with many aspects of it (like how your entire perspective on time will change), it can be quite peaceful. Just keep in mind, that if you aren't cut out for it, by the time you acknowledge it, it may be too late for you to have enough energy to change anything. Best thing is probably, that you definitely should try to prevent to turn into a Hikkikomori.

>> No.21124685

Responding to this post but it more generally fits the prognosis of other NEET posts. Being a NEET is like living as an impoverished aristocrat in slave republics of old. You have all the free time for whatever pretension or pursuit you wish to follow. Often others will tell you or you will begin to lower the value of yourself because you aren't contributing to modern technological society, but this is a farce.

Nothing about our biology or psychology is built to repetitively complete a task in a subservient social position in a sterile indoors environment. Multiple billion dollar industries all focus on desperately placating the natural human faculties of those that work. Anyone who insists they are right, or virtuous, or anything else for doing what they were programmed to do by their masters is full of it.

So then what do you do? In most countries it would be extremely hard to live a natural lifestyle off the land, legal systems are built to screw over anyone who tries, even if they buy property to do it. So the only other option is to take rent from technological society and spend the only valuable thing there is, which is time.

Philosophy is one good thing to start studying especially if you have nihilistic tendencies. Once you've solved those, start working on a craft whether it be physical or intellectual.

You need to make your own work as a NEET, if you cannot you are not cut out for it. The most fulfilling life you can live is working hard at what you like, on your own schedule, but you must develop discipline and a goal first. It's okay to work until you figure those out.
If you do nothing but consume or even engage in hobbies it will rot your soul away.

The job and management still sucked, pay was minimum wage, it took a large chunk of my day away but I didn't feel miserable at least. Some places don't even let you talk to each other or listen to music/podcasts/whatever. Now that's some grade A bullshit.

Being an actual NEET is terrifying, especially if you don't have anything planned for the future. Unless you're one of the few people that have the self-discipline to tackle a project every day you'll find your mind atrophying as you squeeze every little bit of novelty and joy from your hobbies and vices. And then you'll continue to indulge in them long after you feel nothing.

And if you have that motivation, chances are you probably aren't NEET.

I couldn't take it after a year and decided recently to go back to university and do a doctorate. I think I'll be quite happy leeching off the government in a socially accepted manner.

If you don't recognise the superiority of the NEET vocation then you don't belong on /jp/. It's as simple as that. One cannot gain access to the NEETstocracy by wealth. This why you see so many people who, once they become NEET, they become paralysed and waste their life away by making kuso threads on /jp/.

No, one has to be born into this life, to share the bloodline of a heroic lineage who throughout the ages has transcended the slave morality of the common men who surround him. This man does not hate the slave, for he recognises that their place in the cosmos is just as legitimate and necessary as his own, but he also realises that there are many things that are far more important than the day to day struggle of wageslavery, and one must always keep in mind the divine plan of the universe before anything else.

Start with the Greeks, as they always say even though it is old hat and you may have already heard about most of them. You don't have to go for Aristotle and Plato, there are plenty of thinkers back then who may more align with your tastes. If the Greeks are a bit too removed for you I would recommend Seneca who is a roman Stoic and his essay "On the Shortness of Life" and his Letters to Lucilius if you liked the former.

From there you can go any number of directions. You can go back to earlier eastern traditions but I would still recommend reading the Greeks because they inform most of the western environment. You don't have to read in order of when philosophers became popular, because at the end of the day they were analyzed and dismantled to arrive at how we think now.

So just focus on the writers and subjects that interest you whether it be ethics, or metaphysics, or whatever it is, and examine it by time period. For example if you are interested in the transition from theism to empiricism go look at the enlightenment Germans.

Reading these thinkers they will often describe thoughts or observations you may have had yourself, but often in a more eloquent way in the context of them being truly innovative for their time.

Overall just try to get what you want out of it. Is meaning and metaphysics bothering you? Go read Descartes and Spinoza. Want advice on what the good life is? Go read the Stoics and later Germans. It isn't for the purpose of having encyclopedic knowledge of philosophy but getting things that will put your mind at rest on certain questions, or advice from the smartest people in a given time.

I am a NEET for around 1 or maybe 2 years now, depending on how one would define it.
In my last year of Uni, I didn't even live in it's city, and did nothing so I would say 2 years.
The year before that I didn't do much either, so I can't believe that its actually been that long.

I don't even know how I feel about the situation.
I think I am one of the kind of people that can kind of cope with being a NEET, I even managed to be a NEET in japan for the last half year (saved up my neetbucks).
Now that I'm back in my own country, I feel like I want to have a job though.
I just want to save up the money, and maybe go back to japan again for a longer time.

In a different sense, being a NEET does feel a little bad though. I guess I just have a problem with mostly nothing happening and my life being kind of stale.
I do have a lot of things to do, but being 100% into it is kind of difficult, and I have just managed to sustain a high output for a few weeks at a time.
Maybe its the problem of a missing schedule, and also a bit of burn-out, since I get too focused on one particular thing at a time, like programming or stuff.

Applying for jobs is a huge bother though. I'm a good programmer, but didn't finish my University degree (too lazy to write my bachelors thesis until it was too late).

This is wrong. Philosophy is not the right field for getting your questions answered. Especially in modern philosophy, for any claim made by one philosopher there are about 10 more that say he's wrong, and then in turn those philosophers theories get swept away by the next generation of philosophers. There's very little certainty in philosophy, the types of questions asked are unanswerable using mere rationality.

I don't. It contributes to putting them in bad situations, because such an abnormality generates conflict and a natural emotion of disgust/repulsion in a large portion of the population.
I'd argue it doesn't even help anyway. Like plastic surgery, it's a momentary outward change that the person gets used to and often ends up feeling bad about. Especially when things go wrong. Which they eventually do, because the body tries to heal itself naturally, rather than the way doc cut it up to be.

Mental illness should be treated as a mental illness. Usually either through some form of ``therapy'' or medication, to get rid of the mental problem that debilitates the individual.
You take care of the mental problem as a mental problem. You don't validate it and CREATE physical problems.

You don't go and validate paranoia in PTSD suffering war vets by telling them that yes, everyone is out to literally kill them in the worst way possible. And you DEFINITELY don't try and make that a reality.
You don't convince schizophrenics that "the voices" or whatever are real beings telling them the most important things in the world. And again, you do NOT try to make that a reality.

Happiness is transient at best. There are other things much more valuable to pursue. Stability, productivity, progression, and power, are all more desirable than straight (Pun intended) happiness, because they're fairly replicable rather than ever fleeting.

I personally think most transfags are stuck in a grass is greener phase. The other sex is not inherently better off, they both have plenty of problems. Much like NEETs versus the employed.
Everyone deals with challenges in life. But by trying to switch you throw MORE challenges at yourself; from your biological sex, from the sex you're changing to be, from the social implications of refusing your natural sex, and from the inherent conflict/repulsion that causes within others around you.
Especially if you go from male to female, because extra feminine hormones WILL make you more anxious and emotional, exacerbating any issues you may have with those.

I absolutely do not wish you any ill will. But it is certainly a bad choice.
Out of the ten or so trannies I know personally and talk to frequently (Mostly on games but a few in real life), only one is arguably better off post transition. And that's more philosophy related than sexual. It's also FtM.
It's been almost nothing but complaints and problems from the others, after they get over the manic novelty phase and get bored of posting about trying to pass (trick others).

The same could be said about switching too or from NEET/employment. It won't solve your problems, it'll just trade them for new ones that you're not used to dealing with at all.

No matter how bad it gets, the NEET life will always be superior to working. Imagine driving 90 minutes to your work, worse yet taking public transport there, so you can have your 8-10 hours + overtime of mindless slaving away for your employer, drive back home another 90 minutes, have dinner and go to bed after half an hour of leisure time so you're halfway fit to repeat all of that the day after. And that continues 5 days a week, if you're lucky, with 2 days off, one of which you'll end up using up just to sleep and take care of personal business and appointments, and the other you'll need to prepare for the week of work.

The benefit of work is massively reduced anxiety about the future since I have money and health insurance, and this diminished anxiety is what allows me to get to sleep easily and get fully immersed in hobbies like games, comics, etc. To me, the NEET life looks like masochism.

Alright nerds, I'm only gonna do this once - for you guys that actually want to earn a bit of your own money while on your PC, this isn't employment, it's just freelance work-from-home platforms. From a 4 year WFH nerd, here's a few to get you started

Prolific Academic - surveys for money, most have decent hourlies. Cashout in Paypal/Circle
Mechanical Turk - under the Amazon umbrella, many tasks are underpaid, but some are great, getting approved initially is a pain. after getting past the learning curve, it's possible to earn more than you would working 40hours min-wage per week. Withdraw to bank account for US workers, amazon.com gift cards for anyone else
User Testing - get paid to try out websites while screen recording and voicing your thoughts.
Product Tube - Usually involves going to a store and recording with your phone while picking up a product and talking about it (you don't buy it IME, just put it back).

I just MTurk full time along with Prolific here and there along with a closed work platform. It varies, but I'll generally pull anywhere from 1,500 to 3,000 per month depending on how lucrative things are. Good luck NEETs, hope at least a few of you benefit from this knowledge.

I've taken meds for 10 years, tried
almost every depression, mood stabalizer, and sleep pill practically, none of them doing shit. Most of the time their fucking side effects are what actually make depression worse. Feeling tired and lethargic all the time? Probably the meds.

I started tapering about 2 months ago and dropped others like I said. I'm doing a whole lot better, actually feel like I can make some progress. Even sleep is a lot better.

Because they ruin and infest the things I like
A part of my hate comes from interaction with such scum

Here are some of my reasons
- Mentally ill, enjoys causing unneeded drama in the hobby community
- Imagine a girl entering your hobby but making it all about them. Multiply it and that's trannies
- Devolve friendships into ERP fests
- Cause NEETs to fight amongst eachother
- Always talk about degenerate things, like butts
- Always changing steam avatars and names, run away from discord drama
- An extremely shallow interest in the hobby itself, cares more about pretending to be the newest popular 2D girl more than the game or show it comes from
- Manipulates their way into admin positions of game groups or janitors, then abuses power and makes it about their drama
- Constantly brings up how they are mentally deranged and tricks people into thinking they are girl so they can manipulate them, like the OP
- Mentally unstable, randomly starts hating people for no reason or insecurity
- Look and acts like abomination in real life, that's why they live their life online
- Extremely soft, can't take the slightest amount of friendly banter in games, tries to make it all a tranny hugbox
- Force their shit degenerate fetishes into everything

Isn't that an oxymoron? Well, whatever.
Because of the drama that comes with them. Either brought on by them starting shit, or by the natural disgust that much of the population feels towards such things.
Especially where topics like sex and politics are absolutely irrelevant, such as video game chats, particularly things like guilds/clans/whatever. Where they love to cocksuck their way into admin/mod positions. Then they go about "correcting" everyone over everything, especially language, getting progressively more and more aggressive about it.
I'd hate anyone who constantly brings shit I don't care about into groups and throws a shitfit at any dissenters. Yeah, yeah, both sides, whatever.
Loosely online like on 4chan it's whatever. In any groups to perform any task, it's noxious at best, and absolutely destructive at worst.
Even pedophiles and drug using degenerates are more tolerable. At least they USUALLY know when their shit is irrelevant and rarely take offense elsewhere, rather than the reverse.

There are exceptions, of course. As always when generalizing. Those are fine.
There are also other people who display the same behaviour without being trannies. I hate them too.

It's sad how true this generally is.
four of my friends are trans, one is alright, the other three used to be fun to talk to until they decided to turn trans which suddenly changed their personality and came will all the baggage in your post.

I honest to god think almost all trans people are only trans because they were depressed and have this idolization of the opposite sex. They're more attractive, they're more privileged, everyone treats them better, etc... they feel more cared about through the superficial attention they receive. I bet some were just wannabe crossdressers with such low self-esteem that they wouldn't actually crossdress till they tricked themselves they were the opposite sex; a reason I think a lot of them dont even take hormones or transition, they just change their name, pronoun, and act/dress more feminine.

Like goddamn what's the point, if men and women are equal, if men can wear womans clothing and wear makeup amd visa-versa for women. If men can act feminine and women can act masculine. Literally what is the point of being trans? Nothing changes except what pronoun you use. If they dont have a surgery, whats the difference between a transwoman and a mentally sane crossdresser? Just the fucking pronoun.

This kind of response is pretty tone-deaf and completely ignores the issues that these people have had to face when those issues are what leads to most of what your problem is about. It's so common for minority groups to have to walk on eggshells or suppress themselves with people that do not treat them with basic decency. "You're one of the good ones" and similar sentiments are steeped in going with status quo and accepting the shit treatment by people and society. "Just act normal", where normal can mean whatever people want it to mean as long as it isn't challenging them. These kinds of things make it clear you aren't interested in empathizing.

Everybody, ABSOLUTELY EVERYBODY has to walk on eggshells and suppress themselves. Personas are absolutely necessary for normal function in life. This is common knowledge, especially in philosophical fields. Without them groups of people simply cannot function.
This is also an issue with making everyone else walk on eggshells trying not to offend them by using the wrong words and shit.

Of course people don't like challenged. That's a given. So don't challenge them with things that don't matter. Especially online, where sex is 100% irrelevant.
Why would anyone be interested in empathising with someone spreading conflict and challenging everyone around them?

If you can shut up about it and leave your sex in your pants then you're an exception. Those people are absolutely fine, seriously. Because they can get along without generating conflict galore.
And of course there are those who will generate conflict without being trannies. Those need to fuck off for the exact same reason.

People can start by not being retarded and triggered by trans people in the first place. By bringing it up you just feed into a vicious cycle. When people keep saying shit like "trans people are _______, but not YOU, you're one of the 'good ones' " they do nothing but contribute to the problem.

Like the other guy said, can go with the whole chicken or the egg argument but either way you go you still have to grow up. That means accepting that you have to put on a persona like everyone else.

Being "one of the good ones" is just "not challenging others constantly", and also "not playing the victim card and demanding empathy everywhere while doing so". Trannies can do that just fine. Several have and do, and those are fine. I only hate those that don't. Because it's the behaviour I hate, not trannies themselves.

Pretty much. I still have some trans friend but I basically peace out when there's two or more in the same vicinity. You get a dozen or so together and it basically devolves into a fetish grooming cult. They try and convince very fragile people they're an "egg", seems they're even more eager if they're underage and they always get sexual about it. Seen it real time before. Extra red flags if they're all "lesbian".

I'm a pretty feminine guy sometimes but it's hilarious how they seem to have the weirdest fetishy strict gender roles. It's like they 90% try to preach the breaking of gender norms but you are a little feminine as a guy and they try to convince you that you're transgender.

The more you NEET it up, the more you realize how true this is. You need to do stuff to distract yourself from that. Games are just repetitive time wasting menial tasks. Anime, movies, and non educational books are just escapes from a life that isn't even worth escaping from if you're a NEET. The internet was a mistake.
>Those things are always good if you actually like them.
Unless you have literally no standards, you'll go through anything you're interested in quick enough and become jaded.

How can you even be interested in just consuming things forever anyway? It's like having a hobby of spending all day eating and saying eating never gets boring. You're going to get full at some point, even if eating is what you truly love doing. Working for others isn't any good either, but you should be trying to find things to do that are productive without just being a slave to someone else. Your problem is merely the quality of your job, not work itself.

It is vastly more important that you are skilled in the language you are translating to instead of Japanese. You just need to know how to read Japanese characters, have a great understanding of Japanese grammar, and how to use a dictionary to be able to translate. To make it a good translation, you have to be able to competently express the meaning of what you translated in a coherent way in the output language.

You keep saying "study" and "learn". NEET = Not in Employment, Education, or Training. If you're spending all your time studying, you're not really a NEET. NEETs don't do anything, that's the point of the term. It doesn't mean "not a wageslave".
You study, you learn, you practice, and then you'd be interested in relaxing with anime or something. Or at least procrastinating with it.

>It's almost impossible
Not really. "16 hours per day" is 32 episodes of an anime series, ignoring that they're 24 minutes about including openings and endings.(which would be like 40 eps) That's like 3 modern series every day. 21 per week. You could watch a nearly a whole years' worth of anime in a month and nearly all of the 2010's anime series in a year, let alone just the ones you actually cared about. 16 hours is also like 8-10 movies a day as well. I somehow doubt there are even 310 excellent movies in a particular language, forget about 3650 merely good ones. Same for books and manga. If you had all day to read them, you'd fly through them. You'd also reach a point where you'd seen enough to just be able to predict what's going to happen and be bored. There are enough sandbox or high replay value games to keep playing, but that's not really different than wasting time or working, depending on the game.

I'm still a neet, but not a full hikki. I barely leave the house though even though I can do it. Didn't improve much.

Be able to read a bunch of stuff and write somewhat well into your native (or near-native) target language.

Pooling all your resources and time into solely reading can make it achievable pretty quick.

I started translating as a side job after 4 years of fucking about taking jp at college and being a weeb.

>The more you NEET it up, the more you realize how true this is.
Oh nihilism, how toxic it is.
Personally, I'm an Absurdist. The conflict between man's desire to find meaning in a meaningless, irrational universe is The Absurd. Absurdism is the study of how to respond to it. And usually results in some form of acceptance and embracing of The Absurd, as well as practice in making ones' own meaning.
I know this may be a coward's answer to a difficult problem though, by running away from it screaming in madness and self-trickery. But that doesn't bother me in the slightest. I am a coward. And the problem is fucking horrifying. Such a response is fitting for self protection.
Usually NEET is defined as not being in formal education, employment, or seeking either at all. Everything else about the term changes from person to person (Sometimes straight up wrongly by assuming every NEET is a hikki, butwhatever). The main point is not being systematically taught or made to work by others.
Under most definitions, you're still allowed self study while still counting as a NEET. Just not education.

I do agree that finding a job you don't hate or maybe even enjoy is far more ideal though. Or at least taking on some form of enjoyable responsibility.

I'm not a nihilist. I eventually came to the conclusion that I don't need a point to be alive, since I doubt other animals, plants, and lower lifeforms look for reasons to continue living. so I'm content even doing absolutely nothing. This has resulted in me not having many desires anymore, so it's even harder to get a job because I don't aspire to anything or have anything I want to spend money on besides basic living necessities.

I enjoy playing mahjong more than masturbating, so as my playtime increases the time spent masturbating decreases. If time is limited for some reason, I don't masturbate.

Pretty sure that falls under nihilism. It's just rejecting absurdism; claiming you don't (shouldn't?) feel the need for meaning and thus don't have the conflict.
Lower life forms also don't need meaning to continue acting. They move on primal desires alone. They do no need rational motivation. Humans usually do.

I'd rather not just Lay Down And Rot, personally. There's much to do, and it would feel like quite a waste to ignore it all just due to something like lack of inherent existential meaning. Fabricating transient meaning to actions to keep moving is much less depressing.

Why? I reject this "humans are different and more special than other animals" idea. They just overthink everything. Animals aren't just completely mindless robots either.

So you're one of those masturbate 5 times a day out of boredom people being reduced to fapping once every 3 days or something?

>> No.21157229

Humans "usually" do because as you said they overthink things. They're generally inclined to search for meaning and question everything along the way. Possibly stopping activity from depression from the realization of lack of meaning, if they don't find some defence mechanism against it.
The point was that animals don't really need to find meaning and can keep moving regardless. With exceptions of course.
If you can keep moving without meaning then so be it, good on you. But that's not "usually" the case.

Wallowing in lack of meaning is meaningless. And also unpleasant as hell.

>Humans are social creatures

Maybe humans are, but not us!
If your point is we have to be social to be happy then fuck all this otaku shit and we all become normalfags. But I think some of us don't like that. I'm perfectly fine alone, I have lived without internet for long time and that gave me inner pace, having people around me, even if I don't particularly dislike them, just stress me.

I don't believe the topics endlessly repeated.
I know about eremites that have lived in absolute solitude for 20 years then 20 years more and they are the most happiest creatures in earth. Only you knows what's good for you.

But why do you need to do everything with that sort of autistic behaviour? You can do other things when you're tired of something. You don't need to burn yourself like that.
And not having enough media to consume seems absurd to me. In last years I have watched more than 700 movies, but my backlog is bigger than that and it grows everyday, while more and more often I feel like rewatching stuff. It makes me feel sad to think I will die without being able to watch all of it.

You have your answer on how not to die before watching your backlog.and then forgetting everything you watched anyway when you die and your brain rots away.
